英文经典励志诗歌《成功的内涵》


WHAT IS SUCCESS Ralph Waldo Emerson
成功的内涵 拉尔夫沃尔多爱默生

What is success? 成功是什么?

To laugh often and love much; 笑口常开,爱心永在,

To win the respect of intelligent people 赢得智者的尊重,

And the affection of children; 孩子们的爱戴;

To earn the approbation of honest critics 博得真诚的认可,

And endure the betrayal of false friends; 容忍损友的背叛;

To appreciate beauty; 欣赏美好的东西,

To find the best in others; 发现别人的可爱。

To give ones self; 学会无私地奉献,

To leave the world a little better, 给世界增添光彩:

Whether by a healthy child, 要么培育出健康的孩子,

A garden patch, 要么留下花园一块,

Or a redeemed social condition; 亦或是改善社会条件;

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm 尽情娱乐、笑得畅快,

And sung with exultation; 把欢乐的歌唱起来;

To know even one life has breathed easier, 甚至知道一个生命活得自在,

Because you have lived… 因为你的一路走来

This is to have succeeded. 这就是成功的内涵。
